Did you know the best enders are located in the smallest looking of rushing white water? I find the place where the water is rushing between the rocks without many air bubbles and drop the nose of my kayak in where the water is rushing through that space. When I do this almost always the pressure of the water will push the boat down to where I go from sitting in the boat to standing on the foot pegs or bulk head foot rest. Once the kayak is vertical in the water, I take my paddle and make a sweep through the water to make the boat spin.

Kayak Roll

To roll a kayak, I learned to reach out far with your right hand holding the paddle and have your left hand holding the paddle closest to the center of your kayak, like you are sticking the paddle under your seat. Once you have your left hand positioned under your seat on the bottom of the kayak. Pull the paddle down with the right hand and twist your hip toward the paddle that you are pulling down. Your head needs to be the last to come out of the water. With practice this should get better. Remember if this doesn't work to pull the emergency rope and get out of the boat to get fresh air.

Hoping that a clerk or the cashier manager will open some more lanes to check out. I do find some of the comical stuff that people do as they wait patiently.  By the way, while I was in the grocery store I have found a cool app that is great for getting cash back rewards much like Ebates.com. I use it every time I shop, and I wanted to share it to you. Please use my referral code, ib5a, and you can get a $10 welcome bonus. Sign up at https://ibotta.com/r/lb5a.
